An Open University student has won an international award.

Emma Nasta, a support manager with Fenland District Council, has been named Professional Certificate in Management Student of the Year by the Open University Business School.

She was presented with the award during a special ceremony held at the Open University in Milton Keynes.

Emma, who is now considering taking a Master of Business Administration course, said: “Although I had been a manager for several years, I wanted a better understanding of my role and more insight into the people I manage.

“The course has helped me to achieve this. I am also more confident, leading and managing projects through to implementation, problem solving and making changes that I wouldn’t have done before.

“I am also more forthright and confident in my personal life.

“Having never studied at this level before I was unsure of what I could achieve – but it has taught me to believe in myself!”
